Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Trying the Privacy Thang!

levelofdetail left a comment over at Go Fuck Your Music Reviews asking for a possible re-upload.

I've been fishing around for a reliable file server in the clouds these days, ever since the untimely Big Brother attack on Kim Dotcom's haven in New Zealand & the wanton destruction of millions of legal (& illegal, to be sure) files. MegaUpload had been easy & reliable.

Then the fear spread like wildfire. Mediafire suspended my account for no good reason. I had no DMCA incidents. In fact, only twice in this blogs history had artists even requested that I delete files (Van Morrison & Rodney Bingenheimer), which I did immediately. Mediafire's reason was simple fear. Since then I have tried more than a dozen other options (Depositfiles & ZippyShare being the best so far).

Then on the one year anniversary of the attack on MegaUpload, Kim Dotcom & company launched a Privacy Project...MEGA. I have high hopes for its success. We all shall see.

I have re-upload levelofdetail's request to MEGA. Try it out if you choose. You'll have to check the comments on the original post to get the decryption key. The only seeming problem so far has been that MEGA uses HTML5. Now all current browsers say they are, well...current, but MEGA recommends Google Chrome. With it, everything seems quite good. They even provide a download of Chrome from their site, or you can get it from Google or many other sources.

Give it a try. Let me know. Keep your fingers crossed. There may be hope for LEGAL file sharing yet.

Enjoy the NEW privacy!

  1. I'm glad you were able to post with Mega. I have an account with them but wasn't able to upload my files. I guess their server is hiccuping at times due to overload. <3

    1. I had trouble uploading until I installed the Google Chrome browser, now things are sweet. If you don't have it or don't want to install it, get someone you know to try it & see if that solves the problem. Otherwise it seem kool.

    1. because MEGA downloads utilize HTML5, not all browsers work. All the current leading browsers state that there latest versions are HTML5 compatible, Firefox 18 is not & Opera 12.12 works somewhat. Google Chrome is widely available across the internet, but if you choose not to install it, that is totally your prerogative. It makes no difference to me either way. I just have invested much time in uploading files again & again, only to have them disappear into nothingness. I am trying MEGA with the hopes that the files might have a bit more longevity. This may be selfish, but as I am the one doing the work, & this is my blog, so be it. If you have issues with Chrome, try contacting MEGA & letting them know. For now I am using several servers, MEGA being one of them.
